The Will of the People - ha. People who were woefully misinformed, and outright lied to, about what "Brexit" actually means.

Ignorance is no excuse, and it is good that he didn't make any excuses or make a non-apology of the "Sorry if you were offended because you misunderstood me" variety. More people should follow his example.
There are many alive who suffered greatly under the regime who flew this flag, and there are those who saw their elder relatives live with the consequences of what this regime did during the war. Since the black vans paste this flag all over their vehicles, we know it has negative symbolism even now.

These police officers were certainly aware of what they are not legally allowed to do; they did it anyway, assuming the public is uninformed about their rights. People like this are not working for the people, but against us.

Who complained about it - British folk, or just general Instagram followers from all over?

And 'experts' once said that riding bicycles would dislodge a woman's uterus and cause her face to splat out like a dropped egg.
Every new invention in history that allows its users a bit of enjoyment has been met with dire warnings from scientists. Calm down, fella.

Very jarring to see the words The Kremlin used. Harks back to the bad old days.
What is the Japanese equivalent of that ^, and of The White House, Westminster, etc.?

Posted in: Do you think it is natural that people are losing interest in the Tohoku reconstruction effort, especially considering how many natural disasters there have been in Japan since then? See in context
especially considering how many natural disasters there have been in Japan since then
How many natural disasters on a vaguely similar level have there been?

for a guy who was being mistreated in prison, he is good shape. I wonder if Ghosn's family was lying about his treatment in prison.
I am curious - From the little you can see of him. how do you think he should look? A bloodied nose, black eyes, and broken teeth? Should he be wheeled out in a chair or unconscious, in order to 'prove' mistreatment?

The scenes of the tsunami - people were sending footage into NHK online almost as soon as it was happening. It was horrifying to see those small figures running for higher ground, desperately trying to outrun that black monster of a wave, and to see not all of them make it.

Thus showing how little understanding they have of addiction. It would be funny if it weren't shocking miseducation.

@Yubaru - the law's the law. If they can arrest and try a woman for a 3-D image of, and a canoe designed in the image of a vulva, then they have to arrest a man for displaying the actual genitalia.
Otherwise the law of Japan displays a misogynistic double-standard of the highest level.
And I'm sure they don't want to do that.

According to Japanese law, genitals and pubic hair are an Obscenity. Even if it's their image. By this token, this man ought to be kept in custody, tried in court, and imprisoned and fined.
Case in point, Megumi Igarashi:

No. Genitals and pubic hair in public view is an Obscenity. He must be charged and prevented from doing it again.

Yes, just look at the photos. What luxury. Who wouldn't want to live there, even if they had the wherewithall to have their own home?

I have his first book knocking about somewhere - when it came out it had a huge impact, as people with disabilities were hardly seen out in public, let alone invited to speak on TV. He does very good work.

No comment on who is responsible for the trafficking, then? Just descriptions of the girls who were victims, but not of the actual criminals. Ain't that always the way...

I take the same bus as a woman in a reclining wheelchair, and her two companions, quite regularly. It's a smooth operation.
Put out the portable slope.
Put up the two or three seats which take up the space the wheelchair needs.
The woman is wheeled onto the bus.The safety belts and wheel stops are put into place while the slope is put away.
It takes two minutes max. The driver was at fault, and if the company encourages this policy, then so are they.

the deputy editor pushed his wife down some stairs after choking her in a bedroom.
It's a short sentence to describe what happened. Pause to consider how much terror and pain Kanoko Pak suffered before she was killed. Imagine what he did to her, and how she would have fought back.
Fifteen years doesn't cut it.

...and even without it escalating to killing humans, causing suffering to and killing animals should never be brushed under the carpet. Wildlife should be protected.

People who torture small animals can do the same to larger ones, ie humans. If he gets away with this, the justice system will show that they support animal cruelty.

Why no prayer rooms for Christians, Buddhists, Jews, or any other faith?
They're called churches, temples, synagogues, shrines, chapels, monasteries, meeting houses, and halls.
